  • g. If you are listening to Hindustani Music (i.e. North Indian classical music), there may be quite a few elements, which you should concentrate.
  • The most uncomplicated part in Western music is to recognize the mode.
  • Thereafter are musical requirements and limitations, which convert the simple mode into the raga.
  • Each raga is unique. It is also supportive to know how these musical things are set in a metrical structure; which is nothing but the taal.
